Encouraging Kids Family Resource Center is a private non-profit (501c3); that began as a way for us to do what we love. Our vision is to create peaceful families and communities by providing current, trauma-informed research and information to those who interact with our kids at home, in school, and in our communities.

There is no single job as important and demanding as parenting. Our failure to give parents specific training for their very difficult job seems based on the belief that if you are a human being  you should know how to raise one.

We believe parents DO have the ability and motivation to raise physically and emotionally healthy children with adequate support and information. Our programs encourage parents to be critical thinkers and advocates for their children, themselves and their families. When you know better, you do better.


Our professionally facilitated playgroups/discussion groups provide a safe, supportive, nurturing setting where children 0-5 years and their caregivers can enjoy a morning of activities and socialization.
